Protecting Homeowners in St. Michael and Albertville, MN

home insurance st michael, mn

Home insurance, also known as homeowners insurance, is an essential type of coverage that protects a private residence. Homeowners insurance provides coverage to repair or rebuild your home after events such as fire, smoke, theft, vandalism, a falling tree or damage caused by weather such as lightning, wind and hail. Most standard homeowners insurance policies also cover furniture, clothing and other possessions. 

The insurance experts at Zachman Insurance Agency make it their mission to help homeowners in the St. Michael and Albertville areas acquire the right coverage to protect their homes and property.  

Coverage tailored to you

Home insurance coverage ranges from general to very specific.  Structure coverage and property coverage are general and are very common.  Special-item coverage and personal umbrella coverage are more specific and are far less common.  Every homeowner needs an appropriate blend of coverages to have an effective policy, and at Zachman Insurance we make sure that each client has this blend.  As a result, our clients do not have gaps in protection and never have to worry about unexpectedly high out-of-pocket costs. 

As an independent agency we work with different insurance carriers, and doing so provides us with a diverse and expansive group of coverage options.  These options include:

  • Property Insurance
  • Homeowners Liability
  • Renters Insurance
  • Condo Insurance
  • Mobile Home Insurance
  • Scheduled Property Insurance
  • Landlords Insurance
  • In-Home Business Insurance

Selecting homeowners coverages can be difficult no matter who is making the selections.  Rates, limits, deductibles, and goals are all considerations that home insurance policyholders must have when choosing their coverages, and at Zachman Insurance we consider them all.  The result is that our clients get optimal policies, so let us help you find the coverages you need and give you the best deal.  This involves helping you take advantage of benefits and discounts that are exclusive to your insurance plan, including discounts for combining home insurance with auto insurance.  If you’d like to learn more about how to make this combination, see our home & auto page

Common Homeowners Insurance Questions:  

What is home insurance?  
Your home represents one of the most important and expensive investments that you will ever make. That value alone is worth protecting, and homeowners insurance will help you do so.  

You never know when a hazardous event—a house fire, break in, severe storm—might occur in your home, cause damage and put you in a very tricky situation. You will want to make the necessary repairs to your property without a huge financial strain, however. Homeowners insurance will pay your recovery costs on your behalf. That way, you can rest assured that you will be able to move on from life’s challenges without costing yourself an arm and a leg.  

What does home insurance cover?  
Homeowners insurance policies offer a diversity of benefits, each designed to offer targeted protection for a diversity of unexpected, unavoidable issues. These include:  

  • Structure protection: This insures your house in the event of damage from fires, weather, theft, vandalism or other hazards.

  • Detached structures coverage: Other buildings on your property – such as fences, carports, gazebos and detached garages – will have coverage.

  • Possessions insurance: This pays for damaged belongings. Protection might cover everything from furniture to food in the pantry and computer systems.

  • Liability coverage: If you accidentally harm someone else or damage their property, you can use this coverage to repay them. Coverage will often pay for incidents both on and off your property.

  • Additional living expense protection: Do you need to move out temporarily after household damage? Let this coverage reimburse you for expenses like dining or hotel bills.

Plus, because your home is unique, you can further tailor your benefits with more unique options like:  

  • Scheduled items riders

  • Replacement cost value possessions coverage

  • Umbrella liability insurance

  • Flood insurance

  • Earthquake and windstorm endorsements

  • Pet liability insurance

We will always customize your plan to your advantage by helping you tailor your deductibles and overall coverage limits.  

How much home insurance do I have to buy?  
Most mortgage lenders require homebuyers to purchase homeowners insurance before they will approve loan applications. Generally, they will require you to obtain at least enough dwelling coverage for your home’s replacement cost value.  

Regardless of any coverage requirement, however, you should always carry this benefit as part of your comprehensive personal insurance package.  

What does home insurance cost?  
Multiple factors could influence the cost of your home insurance, including:  

  • The value of the home

  • The home’s location

  • Your credit score

  • Security features in the home

  • Your chosen policy and coverage limits

Our agents are committed to helping clients get the customized policies that are perfect for them. That’s why we’ll work one-to-one with you to determine the best ways to get your home the coverage it deserves, but at prices you can afford.
